Yesterday I began this journey by meeting the team in Tennessee.
I'll briefly tell you about the adults on the team, since I will be mentioning them I'm sure!
-Taylor and Jay are the team leaders, and they're married and in their mid twenties.
-Prava (19) and I are the chaperones for the team. She's from Nepal and is such a sweetheart.
-Alan (22) and Kory (22) are the tech guys. They run sound and help set up and tear down the stage.
We had a concert tonight, and we have two at the same church tomorrow morning. After that, we'll drive to Knoxville, Tennessee and do another show in the evening. We're spending the night with all the kids at a hotel tomorrow night, so that should be fun. Most of our kids are from Uganda, but three are from Nepal. They are all precious and have showered me already with hugs and kisses on the cheek.
During the concert tonight, I just kept thinking about how I used to love when Children of the World came to Liberty (while I was a student there.) I never would have imagined I'd have the opportunity to tour with them! I love singing along with them while they sing and dance, since I know the songs (I bought the CD last year :)
I think one of my favorite things ever is seeing kids from other countries praise the Lord with smiles on their faces.
Nkwagala! ["I love you" in Luganda, the language our Ugandan children speak.]
